Misfit Shine 2 Swimmer's Edition

 

The Misfit Shine 2 Swimmer's Edition makes it easy to automatically count your laps, as well as all your activity. It's a good looking device for swimmers, but not the only one.

Swim time and laps easily tracked. Includes smartphone notification alerts. Supports a range of activities. Elegant design. Multiple ways to wear. Comfortable and lightweight. Good app. Reliable metrics. Can control supported smart devices.

Unattractive wrist strap. No true display; LED indicator lights only. Requires mobile app. Doesn't include pregnancy or cycle-tracking options.

Comparisons and Conclusions Among trackers for swimmers, the Shine 2 is a fine option, albeit a simple one. I encourage you to weigh it head-to-head against the Misfit Ray. The Ray is far and away my favorite tracker of the year from a fashion...

Misfit Shine 2 carbon black

 

As I was taking another meeting at a local hotel, I looked at my wrist. The rubber wrist-strap that used to have a golden disc in it was empty. I looked everywhere: in the lobby, on the street, at the cafe where I went before the hotel. I gave up.

Clean-looking, well-designed app: works with iOS and Android phones; improved Bluetooth syncing; waterproof for swimming or showering; internal battery lasts six months and can be replaced; automatically tracks sleep and adds vibrations for silent...

The included strap and clip are terrible: They don't securely hold the Shine 2, nearly guaranteeing it'll be lost sooner or later. No heart rate tracking; LED lights show daily progress and the time, but can't show other data.

The Shine 2 is a decent fitness tracker that's waterproof and vibrates, dogged by a fatal flaw: it just won't stay on our wrist.

Misfit Shine 2 fitness and sleep monitor review

 

Track your steps, calories, sleep and swimming activity with this £80 activity monitor that offers vibration for notifications too.

Overall, we'd recommend the Misfit Shine 2. It's an all-rounder with some added perks including the haptic feedback for notifications and calls, which we've found enormously useful. Comparing it with rival Fitbit we think it's been priced well, and not...

I lost my Shine 2 somewhere near Park Avenue and 27th street.

Misfit Shine 2 Review: In Depth

 

Misfit Shine 2 Review: This ultra-slim and light fitness tracker from Speedo is pleasingly versatile. Here's our full Misfit Shine 2 review.

Skinny and light ; Great battery life ; Versatile ; Good for swimmers

Not too durable ; Limited feedback ; Feature-light

The Shine 2 is definitely geared towards swimmers, as you’d expect from Speedo. That super-light waterproof design, lap tracking and excellent battery life makes it desirable for anyone who regularly hits their local pool, and the flexibility is a...

Misfit Shine 2 review: Among the better fitness trackers you can get

 

Misfit Shine 2 is a sleek and stylish fitness tracker that can do track various activities and your sleep as well.

Honestly, I don’t believe fitness trackers help with their step count or calories burnt. A balanced diet, physical activity like running or a daily power walk or a swim (not just going up and down the office steps) and proper sleep are still the best...
